ITT: People who look back fondly on the days when the NBA was dominated by Magic's Lakers and Bird's Celtics discuss how the league sucks now because it's too top-heavy.

Actually, Mile Miller did that already. Still, +1, good headline.

For a second I thought it said "deadlist cooter in Florida" and I imagined Anna Nicole coming back from the dead.

So MIA is now just a pit stop for soon-to-be retiring players who want a quick ring before they hang up their sneakers?

I don't think I've ever seen someone work harder at a joke that was never within a mile of being funny.

First of many. Ray will be the special guest star for this season, only to have his character killed off in the next (Right in time to galvanize the team for their first threepeat). After they do a tasteful goodbye in the Dexter series finale the next superstar looking for a ring will join and the cycle repeats. I hope it's Rajon.

Seriously, fark Boston. This is what you get for letting two of those 9/11 planes out of Logan (Note: NYKnicks traded rights for revenge for another key piece to a 2005 NBA championship team)

What are you dumb micks going to do now? Shoot someone's preggo wife and blame it on the black guy...

Ohhh its funny. Zimmerman shot and killed a child and this man shoots basketballs very well. Shoot and shoot. Its funny when words are the same for different contexts. Also, its edgy because Zimmerman shot and killed a child. Its edgy when you make jokes that minimize a recent tragedy that didn't affect you directly. This headline is edgy and funny because George Zimmerman shot and killed a child.

Actually, my fondest memories were the years when the stranglehold was broken by the Bad Boys, only to have it be replaced by Jordan's Bulls.

Continue, though.

He's already got a ring. He probably likes the idea of having to do less work to get his shots. In Boston, he's got to come off double screens to get an open look against a good defense. In Miami, he'll need to be on the opposite side of the court from Wade when LeBron drives or posts up.

From an injury standpoint, he probably looks at Miami as a place he can play less minutes, and the minutes he play will be less strenuous. Miami is the best place in the league, by far, for a spot up shooter, especially an older player.

I heard he left Boston because he didn't like playing with Rondo.

Well now Miami can deal with his 4-13 nights while giving up 20-30 at the other end.

UCONN and Boston fan here. I've been following Ray since he first ran on the court as a freshman and started raining down threes. He's a good guy and a class act. I wish him the best.

I know he was ring hunting when he went to Boston but this is straight whoring. Just hoping someone steps up and does us all a favor ala Mavs. Can't stomach the thought of a Heat "dynasty".

Zimmerman's over-rated, he only went 1-for-1 from the field on the night of the All Star Game.

Still, he's 28, so he has maybe six, eight years to improve.

Oh jeez not this shiat again....Zimmerman capped a punk much bigger than him, who was beating the snot out of him when he got capped. If Trayvon Martin was white....Zimmerman would be the "black" guy and all the Racists and White Guilt people would be saying the white kid deserved it

Subby +1 for the headline, and Zimmerman did a justifiable capping. May Ray Allen cap some opponents arse for the Heat this coming season

Yeah, but he did that being covered by a guy 4-5 inches taller than him, and who was banging his head on the sidewalk when he drilled his shot. That would be like....Andrew Bynum covering Ray Allen

not a bad deal for the Heat if Miller and Jones retire. they still have a 3 point threat

No, that was when Zimmerman filmed Glenn Beck raping and killing a girl.

Hey, Trayvon was heavily armed with potentially deadly Skittle pellets and iced tea.

Good luck Ray. It was awesome seeing him play in Boston and I was glad to see him help the Celtics win another title.


Otherwise fark the Heat and I hope they never win another title. My hope is to watch them lose in the first round of the playoffs every year.

Rays ankle is held together with bailing wire. He was butt hurt because he was coming off the bench after he came back from injury. He had a sad so he took his ball and went to gods waiting room for less $$$

Ha! Won't happen now that the NBA has figured out that they get better ratings in the finals if more people tune in hoping to see the Heat lose. The refs will get them there, just like this year.

I wish there was more parity like back in the 80s when two teams dominated or the 90s when one team dominated the league. It was so much better back then.
 
2012-07-07 10:45:34 AM
Isn't this what the Patriots have been doing for ten years or more? Offering less money for a chance at a ring. The butt hurt in Boston pleases me greatly.

First you start babbling incoherently, then you bring up 9/11 & Logan, then you shoot off a Mick blast.

Well done, good troll.
 
2012-07-07 11:20:43 AM
I'm a Celtics fan, and I'm okay with this. With Avery Bradley coming on like he did last year, we have a legit starting 2-guard. Between Green and Wilcox coming back, and Sullinger and maybe even Fab Melo contributing, the Celtics have a shot next year. Not saying they're the favorites, but really... who do you like better in the East after Miami?

Does anyone have any more insight into the whole Rondo/Allen beef that's supposedly out there? I read about that increasingly over the past few days during Allen's decision making process, but haven't heard anything before that.

This is gonna be a great pickup for Miami - Ray could end up shooting near 50% from three with LeBron kicking it to him. If they can pickup Camby too, that would be the rebounding presence they haven't had.
